The Sound of Music OBC Album Cover

Columbia Masterworks recorded the original Broadway cast album a week after the show's 1959 opening. The album was the label's first deluxe package in a gatefold jacket, priced $1 higher than previous cast albums. It was #1 on Billboard's best-selling albums chart for 16 weeks in 1960.[1] It is currently available on CD from Sony in the Columbia Broadway Masterworks series.[2]

The soundtrack to the film The Sound of Music was released in 1965. It reached number one in June of that year and spent a total of 70 weeks at the top over several runs.[3] It was the biggest-selling album in the UK during 1965, 1966, and 1968 and the second biggest-selling of the entire decade. The Sound of Music also stayed 73 weeks on the Norwegian charts, becoming the seventh best-charting album of all time in that country.[4]

There were differences between the 1959 Broadway soundtrack album and the 1965 soundtrack. Three songs from the Broadway production, "An Ordinary Couple", "How Can Love Survive?", and "There's No Way To Stop It" were cut and replaced with two new songs, "I Have Confidence" and "Something Good", that were written by Richard Rodgers.[5]

The music was written by Richard Rodgers with lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II and arranged and conducted by Irwin Kostal.

The Sound of Music: Music from the NBC Television Event was released on December 3, 2013.[8] The soundtrack, released by Sony Masterworks, includes studio recordings of songs that were later performed live during the broadcast.[9] Walmart stores sold the soundtrack with an exclusive nine tracked sing-along bonus disc.[10] The album debuted on the Billboard 200 chart at number 17 with sales of 38,000.[11][12][13] On December 21, 2013 the soundtrack debuted at number 2 on the Billboard Soundtracks chart.[14] The following week the soundtrack held the number 2 spot on the Billboard Soundtracks chart,[15] as well as its third week on the chart.[16] It has sold 103,000 copies in the US as of January 2, 2014.[17]

ReceptionEdit

Template:Album ratings Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic gave the soundtrack three out of five starts and did not give much of a positive review. He stated that the soundtrack "is absent the one quality that made the televised musical so interesting: it is not recorded live; it was cut in the studio" and stated that by doing so the cast are show how they "are throwing themselves into their roles." Erlewine did however praise them for staying true to the original Broadway musical and the film by stating "the arrangements are faithful to either the original Broadway production or, most often, the 1965 film -- which is appropriate" and concluded by stating "This 2013 staging is a nostalgic celebration of one of the most beloved 20th century musicals and it does right by its source material."[8] Matt Bjorke of Roughstock praised Underwood's vocals stating "She really suits musical theater (much like she’s a classical country singer at heart). Her pure and pristine voice simply shines on songs like "The Sound of Music" and "My Favroite Things" (with Audra McDonald). Bjorke also predicted that the album would do well due to Underwood's appearance on the soundtrack and stating her duets with Moyer and Rinehart "are equally strong and beautifully crafted with musical director/conductor David Chase." He also stated that Borle's, McDonald's and Benanti's appearances would "help the soundtrack give fans something to enjoy long after the live event concludes." Bjorke concluded by stating "This is an iconic Broadway production and while there has been some ‘worry’ that they’ll mess it up, this soundtrack should easily put those worries to rest and it should give fans excitement that Carrie Underwood could one day headline a Broadway production if she so chooses to do so."[18]
